I have made this several times now, both with yogurt and sour cream. Verdict: scrumptious! Adults and kids alike love it, with or without the glaze. I give guests the option of putting the glaze on, depending on their sweet palate. I double the filling and alternate the batter and filling to create more heavenly swirls of flavor. I do check at 45 minutes to see if it is done. It is moist, tender, warm and aromatic. This is a staple in my house!

The cake came out great from the oven, but I thought the texture was dense and a little dry. I had to substitue sour cream for the yogurt, but didn't feel thatwould make a difference. My husband liked it, but I guess my palate is a little more fussy. Still looking for the best, moist, rich Cinnamon Swirl cake.

5 star. I used sour cream and it came out perfect. Love the texture. I put some of the 'filling' on the top. We love it. Great in the morning with coffee

Great recipe. I was worried about the glaze making it too sweet - my husband doesn't like overly sugary/sweet desserts - but he loved it and would get a small piece every morning w/his coffee.
